Follow the Drinking Gourd  Paul Campbell

     [Em]Follo[A]w the dr[Em]inking gourd,
     Follo[A]w the dr[Em]inking gourd,
     For the [G]old man is a w[D]aitin' for to c[Em]arry you to fr[Bm]eedom,
     [Em]Follow the dr[Bm]inking g[Em]ourd.

When the [Em]sun comes up and the first quail calls,
Follow the drinking gourd.
The [G]old man is a w[D]aitin' for to c[Em]arry you to f[Bm]reedom,
[Em]Follow the dr[Bm]inking g[Em]ourd.


Now the river bank'll make a mighty good road,
The dead trees will show you the way.
Left foot, peg foot, travelin' on,
Follow the drinking gourd.


Now the river ends between two hills,
Follow the drinking gourd.
There's another river on the other side,
Follow the drinking gourd.
